Standin' on the corner in



This fence won't pass the aesthetics test, but there is a story behind it - literally :).

We were told that the adjacent building had burned and the fence was a safety measure to keep people out.

Aren't all those reflections in the windows cool!!!
And the eagle is so stately sitting on the window ledge.

Ok, I'm pulling your leg.
Visit this link if you don't know the real story.





I was telling Kathy, a fellow blogger, that I missed many, many photo opportunities on this trip.
I did take many, many photos, but this was America's Route 66!!!!!

A great thing was that the Disney movie "Cars" came out that summer.  I didn't see the movie until after our trip so it was especially fun to watch.
I gotta go back.  In fact, maybe I need to find that movie and watch it tonight!!!

We stayed in Winslow last summer when we went to the Grand Canyon. We had been to the Painted Desert that day...

Our favorite Route 66 town was Seligman.... Got tons of great photos there...
Hugs,

Well how cool is that! I'll have to put that on my list of things to see.

Well, how cool! I do like the truck! That's sharp.

Kathy said...

I stopped in Winslow last summer just to take a pic of this corner. Would you believe the road was under construction and you couldn't even get to that spot!

Linda said...

I was singing the song before I ever got to the end of your post! One of my very favorites...great shots! How fun to travel Route 66 - maybe one day!

I totally didn't get the eagle on the ledge thing at first. I'm such a dork. Now if I can only get the song out of my head.

okay. you got me... pulled me in like a bass on a line. Just kidding. Great pictures and I do love the reflections.

Love the song and fantastic shots. Went to the link and got a big surprise. The name of the muralist is the same name of a cousin of mine. Had to send him a ribbing about hiding his talents yada yada.

Thanks for making my day.

I started to say, well where's the girl in the flatbed Ford? But I went back and looked again at the photograph and realized she's in the reflection! Too cool!

Bruce Clark said...

Nice shots...one of my bucket list goals is to drive the entire length and photography Route 66. I envy you right now!

Roan said...

That is an amazing mural! You had me believing. ;)

Madge Bloom said...

Wasn't that song by the Eagles?? That was the first thing that went through my mind... lol!
